    Default Biting - 13mo. Please help!

    My DD has just turned 13mo and is going to childcare 4 days a week. I picked her up yesterday to find she had bitten 2 children. One I am not worried about... you put your fingers in her mouth, yes she will bite you, but the other one was a baby no more than 6mo, and she bit her on the eye... I cried when they told me this. This isnt the first time its happened but I just dont know how to deal with it. I feel I know her trigger, she is tired and frustrated, but I am getting little support from the centre to get some consistent discipline and ensuring she gets enough naps that she doesnt get to this point. So my questions...

    1. How at this age can I make sure she knows that this is not ok and help her deal with her frustration?

    And 2. How do I deal with the centre? I worked in childcare and I feel like I always listened to the parents in these situations as they know their kids better than I ever would!!

    Any advice is appreciated! TIA

    I'm glad to see that mums do want to do something about biting. I feel quite hopeless as my DS gets bitten at child care and there is nothing I can do

    I am devastated she has done this! At this age she isnt doing it to hurt people. She is trying to communicate something... I would rather her get bitten than bite someone any day though!
